About Me

Hello Blogging World!

My name is Jessica and I am the creator behind this little piece of the internet, J is for Journey. I started this blog way back in the fall of 2013 when I left to teach English in Novara, Italy for a semester after college graduation. I stepped away from the blog for a few months upon my return while I was trying to figure out where my life was going and, after becoming a high school teacher, I felt the itch to blog again. And then motherhood dragged me away again but I missed it so much so I am back (again).

I have a Bachelor’s from the University of Central Florida in Art History with minors in Italian, Medieval & Renaissance Studies, and Anthropology. I teach AP Art History, AP & standard World History. This blog, like my life, is centered around art history, which thankfully overlaps a lot with my love of travel and world cultures.

I hope you enjoy learning about my travels and adventures in world history!



  1. I am a high school student interested in studying AP art history. Really enjoy visiting your website!
